Wales and Swansea captain Ashley Williams has insisted he is not interested in the talk surrounding his future and is instead fully concentrated on Sunday's game at Stamford Bridge. 

“If you’re being linked with other teams it means you’re doing your job properly, I can’t think about things like speculation, I’m here with Swansea, enjoying playing in the Premier League and being captain and that’s what I’m focused on," Williams said, speaking to Wales Online.

The Swans skipper has highlighted his ability many times this season including a sterling performance at Stamford Bridge in Swansea’s Capital One Cup semi-final first leg win over Rafa Benitez's men. 

Interestingly the Welsh side are unbeaten in their last four against the Blues and Williams reckons they can continue that record. 

“We can get a result there," he added. "It was a bit of a smash-and-grab in the semi-final, but I think to get anything at those types of places it’s always going to be a bit like that."

Swansea have eased off of late and are attempting to break a five game winless streak on Sunday, however Chelsea are also in need of a win as they chase the remaining Champions League spots, which Williams hopes won't hinder his side.

“They have got their own targets and goals, whereas we’re not going to be getting into the Champions League or in danger of getting relegated," he explained.

“We have our personal pride in terms of trying to win and there is the fact we will have more money the more games we win and the higher up the table we are."
